Posted on 07/08/2014 8:59:25 PM PDT by kingattax
Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy has argued that "impeachment was quite intentionally included by the Framers as the ultimate check against presidential lawlessness," and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said on Tuesday that the illegal immigration issue was the "tipping point" for her in deciding that Obama needed to be impeached for a pattern of lawlessness.
Appearing on Fox News' Hannity after she called for Obama's impeachment in a Breitbart News op-ed, Palin said that Obama has already committed at least 25 impeachable offenses, including lying to the American people and fraud, especially on policies like Obamacare and the federal debt.
Palin said the illegal immigration crisis that Obama created issue hurts American workers of all backgrounds and noted that "a great awakening is due in this country." She said impeachment can send a message to Obama that "he is not an imperial president and lawlessness will not be accepted by the American people." Saying that protecting the Constitution is a "bipartisan issue," Palin called on Congress to "do its job to halt an imperial presidency" and "halt the fundamental transformation of America."
"Let's get going on that," she said.

Obama is behind this illegal invasion.
He got his freaky amnesty. They all did.
Palin is right, although this Congress will never actually do it.
“lawlessness”? Why do they keep using that word? The word to use is TREASON.
Since Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador are invading the United States, Congress should declare war on these rouge nations. Then when they send these people over the border we can either treat them as refugees, and put them in refugee camps until the war is over, or we can arrest them as prisoners of war.
In the meantime we can send the Marines down to Central America to restore peace to these allegedly “war torn” areas. After the war is over we can return them all to their homelands.
We wasted trillions of dollars trying to nation build in the Middle East when the real war on America has been waged along the Rio Grande.
If either of these happens, all bets are off on impeachment. Gov. Palin will look like a prophetess.
“....Congress should declare war on these rouge nations.”
Get real — when was the last time that the US declared war on any country?
Not even on Korea.
She also indicated that, while she strongly supports the GOP party platform, the Republican Party itself was in danger of leaving her.
very good points
He doesn’t get his way, so the Narcissist in Chief brings this expensive calamity down on our heads.
It’s past time to impeach our illegal alien marxist president.
Obama has effectively declared war on the United States of America.
BTW, I said they SHOULD declare war, I didn't say they would.
Sending an invasion of your citizens into a foreign country is an act of war. Mexico is complicit in this as is Obama. Obama is an enemy of the United States. He not only should be impeached, but he should be tried for TREASON.
I think if Congress had any intentions of acting they would have done so long before this..they certainly had reason enough to do so.
Palin’s able to speak out because, just as she said, she wanted the freedom to do so without political “ties” preventing her as she endured when running with McCain. Most politicians won't speak out unless they have a large support to do so from the public, and even then they will be so cautious the “crisis” generally passes or there's a larger issue to contend with.
They may even go so far as to tell us what's on the table..but it never gets acted on soon enough to stop or make the difference it needs to.
But this is different...this is ‘a very real invasion of our country’. Their silence speaks volumes they are compliant with what is happening. ...and that is frightening for there's no one in Washington protecting our nation or the people. What's more frightening is every other nation is seeing this now, that we are more than weak, we are flat out down on our knees! I fear then who could take advantage of the position we are in.......and how far they will go.
I also believe this fear is a good fear...for fear brings courage to act. I'm pretty much there.
What’s the chance of trying Obama for treason when the Secretary of State clearly committed treason in wartime, and nobody gives a darn?
In the meantime we can send the Marines down to Central America to restore peace to these allegedly war torn areas. After the war is over we can return them all to their homelands.
Screw that. You go down there. No more American blood for any of the bastards.
Marines on our border is one thing, but not down there.
1812, against Britain. 1846-1848, against Mexico. Against Spain. Then WWI and WWII.
And remember, Pershing and Patton kept busy fighting Mexico.
It’s time to give Mexico some more attention, if only to blow up their railroads.
Has anyone seen any news reports of all the warring going on in Central America??
What’s sad is that Obama cut off our military aid to the Honduran government after the military obeyed orders from their Supreme Court to remove their President who tried to conduct an election that would give him a second term (the “results” of the election were found in his briefcase even though the ballots he had printed up were never used). The Honduran Constitution requires the removal of any President who attempt to get a second term. The guy who rigged those election “results” and wanted to illegally hold his re-election was a communist buddy of Chavez - just like Obama.
So now those people, who have seen what Obama is really about, are going to trust Obama enough to come here at his bidding? They, more than anybody, should know better.
The Honduran Constitution ruled second terms unlawful because they know there is a tendency toward revolution, and that the temptation to be a LONG ruler and become tyrranical is a temptation too strong for leaders there. They’ve figured out that power is intoxicating. So what does Obama do? He throws OUR lawlessness at them. Sheesh.
What Eric Holder et al did with Fast and Furious was war against all these countries.
Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution....
The President, Vice President and ‘all’ civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, ‘and Conviction’ of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
BTW Marlowe....it appears these rouge nations are assisting in this for the kickback they’re getting from our Gov...our tax dollars.
Agree that a black swan event could change everything. But I see the charge and trial in the House as a separate issue from removal from office upon conviction in the Senate.
Impeachment is such a serious charge that it must never be made frivously, and if if it is warranted, the charge should be brought and the case argued in the House without regard for what might happen in the Senate. This is too serious a matter for amateur lawyers to play “plea bargain” games as per a previous thread today. It debases the Congress and the nation as a whole if high crimes and misdemeanors have been committed, and the House is afraid to bring the charge of impeachment just because someone is trying to second-guess what might happen or how it might impact the upcoming election.
I guarantee you if the tables were turned and it was a Republican president, there would be no hesitation whatsoever. None.
besides that earthquake I haven’t seen much
Ah yes, the old quartering act. It went over like the proverbial screen door on a submarine, in the colonies.
Has anyone seen any news reports of all the warring going on in Central America??
Not a word. Is it between the Drug Cartels?
Don’t we have some Army troops in Honduras?
Probably burning the fields of cocaine or something.
We're not even willing to do that. Regardless, these countries have committed acts of war against the United States by conspiring to invade the United States. If we can't react to an active invasion, then we are no longer a Country.
If we can’t react to an active invasion, then we are no longer a Country.
That’s right. And we sure don’t need to send any Americans anywhere south of our own border.
Yeah, I think they are for drug interdiction. What a joke.
It worked out pretty well in 1846.
It worked out pretty well in 1846.
Yes it did. But 1846 is why they’re seriously into “Reconquista” now.
Then we need to go back down there and teach them another lesson. Then in another 150 years we can do it again. Only this time we need to annex Baja California. We can relocate all the people in Tijuana. But there is some really prime beachfront real estate in Baja just waiting to be part of the US. We made a serious mistake when we set the border at San Diego. We should have set it at the Colorado river.
Like I said, you lead the way.
We aren’t going to get tied up in a war in Mexico.
Then let's just surrender the Western US back to Mexico and give them their Aztlan state.
If we aren't willing to go to war to protect our sovereignty, then we are not a sovereign nation.
Sealing the border and some drones would do it.
Obama already sealed the border. Didn't you hear his speech a couple of years ago? The border is secure. You have Obama's word on it.
These are not univited illegal aliens; these are war refugees.
“Palin is right, although this Congress will never actually do it.”
True, we have to take the Senate first.
Until then, we need to focus on securing our borders.
“Take the Senate”
to what end? Most GOPers won’t vote to convict. I doubt most House GOPers would vote to impeach unless they were sure Obama would win in the Senate.
By “take the senate,” I mean conservatives, not liberal Republicans (or lib Dems) taking it. And I know that’s unlikely.
But my main point is that impeachment proceedings would be a waste of time, so we need to work on pressuring our politicians to secure our borders.
Impeachment is such a dumb idea at this point I won’t even
Why is that so? Because they have "better" things to do? Like immigration reform? Raising the debt ceiling? Starting up hearings on F&F?
With a useless Boehner, might as well keep them busy with impeachment; keeps Boehner out of trouble and engaged. If it goes to the Sinate with Reed they probably won't convict... but the taint of impeachment even without conviction would help handicap this regime while it tries to finish us off.
People so support Obama in practical ways that many would not mind an illegal forced to live in their own home if the government pays them a subsidy to house the dispossessed one.
“Obama is behind this illegal invasion”
You can bet him and his butt boy Biden are a$$ deep behind it. This invasion of the lil greaser invasion did not start until Biden returned from his visit to SA and Mexico. He set it all up and then it started. These young people did not “walk” from SA across Mexico to the border. They were shipped like cattle.
Anyone that has been down south, even to the Texas southern border, would know you do not walk 1600 miles across desert and brush. Male bovine scat........they were shipped to the border all compliments of the American taxpayer.
There are several other similar invasions on a much smaller scale that are precedent.
Refugees fleeing Somalia, Liberia and Nigeria are here is communities specifically established for their in migration.
I was specifically told by Liberians that they were here because they feared for their lives in Liberia.The stories were so pat, so identical, that it was obvious they were spewing the tale they were told to tell to justify refugee status.
There were several groups that fled Vietnam and Laos using the same procedures.
spewing the tale they were told to tell to justify refugee status
and the road goes on forever and the story never changes (or something like that)
These people have been coached to say what they say.
For the last several years I and a few like minded buds have chased these grass crawling invaders in S Texas. They have been caught with cheat sheets of what to tell BP when caught. Including the Chicoms and rags that we swept with the Mescans and OTMs from SA.
At first in ‘05 and early ‘06 it was the Brazilians that were coming over in mass with their story down pat, with the rags blending in with them. Once our great FERAL Government said no more free amnesty for Brazilians it was almost like the faucet was turned off.
From later on it was Cubans and Chinese and always SA. Then in late ‘09 the Africans started showing up, Somalians and such. Then the Chinese started showing up in force in ‘10 when Mexico made a deal with China on the unloading facility and that all Chinese did not need papers to come to Mexico but they could not stay there. We were catching droves of the slant eyed bastards, 30 to 40 in a group with 4 or 5 smugglers. At $30K a pop, we were hurting someone. Bwhahahahahaha.
It is crazy down there now more than it has ever been talking with landowners I know but different. Illegals are just turning themselves in. They used to run because they knew they would be sent home. Now they know they have a free bus ride to paradise.
Why we quit going down there. No sense in hunting these illegal invaders if our worthless government is just going to give them a free ride to paradise on our dime.
/rant off sorry.
“Remember the Alamo,” Bang! Bang!
I don't think that she is right in this case. Impeachment is not about justice, it is a political act and it is the Constitutional political remedy for a President who has exceeded his authority or his mandate. Once he has passed this threshold, almost any act will pass muster to bring impeachment charges and to prevail in a Senate trial. But it is foolish to proceed unless you have the political means to carry it to its end.
There is no doubt that he has broken laws and defied the Constitution and would be convicted in any fairly run court of law. But this is not about the law, it's about politics and you cannot proceed to trial unless you have the political will to deliver two thirds of the votes of the Senate. You don't set out to kill the King unless you are certain that you can get it done. If the King survives, he will be stronger. We learned that lesson with Clinton. The Democrats can stymie any attempt to impeach Obama and will use the occasion to advance their agenda.
What we need to do it to use the anger and frustration with Obama to elect more conservatives to the House and Senate and to destroy the Democrats in the 2016 election.
I love u Sarah, but, blah, blah, blah, talk, talk, talk. Talking does NOTHING.
John Boehner says Nope.
